Jim Carrier96 - One of the movies that was a foundation to the crazy, raunchy comedies.
Rob from GuysFilmQuest85
Sir M Hayes XIV85 - A classic that was so far ahead of its time
Rich Alejandro75 - For all intents and purposes, this is a coming of age movie. Everyone has seen this at least once. If you haven't, I'm kidnapping you and making you watch this.
